The One Item That Inspired Our Entire Kitchen Design

A question we receive often when it comes to a new room design is: Where do you start? And the truth is … we don’t have a clear answer. I’m admittedly the kind of person that feels frustrated if we start a room design and it feels ‘off’; it could be anything from the paint color […]

How We Designed the Tree House Kitchen + Mudroom

This post is a paid partnership with Lowe’s. Last week, we shared where we’re headed with the overall aesthetic of the kitchen and mudroom in our Tree House – a neutral palette, warm woods and painted finishes. We’ve decided to tackle these rooms together, not only because they’re adjoined, but also because both spaces will receive cabinetry, […]

Let’s Talk About the Kitchen + Mudroom!

Over and over again, we hear you say, Tree House is moving along so quickly! There’s not much else to do! First, this makes us nervous laugh, because you guys, there is still so much more to do.

Tree House Gets a Furnace (But Not Without a Lot of Problem Solving)

Talking about Tree House’s new HVAC system might not scream exciting!, but it is (very, very) exciting to rip off that expensive bandaid and allow this home to be warm and cozy year round! As a refresher, Tree House was considered a three season home when we purchased it, with very hot-to-the-touch baseboard heaters to get us through fall and chilly spring […]

The First Things On The Tree House To Do List

Welcome to Our Tree House!

We couldn’t be more excited to share with you our newest addition, which we lovingly call our Tree House! If you follow us on Instagram, many of you know (and saw the tiniest of sneak peeks!) that we recently became the giddy, proud owners of an adorable home in Lakeside, Michigan. It’s been 11 years […]
